We just installed this vessel sink, and our cats think it's their OWN NEST. I'm not concerned since the thickness is such that it can take two kitties curled up in it and not shatter. ( And, it just looks fabulous! It "glows" from the reflected vanity lights. )
This sink is stunning! It arrived packaged so snug that it felt like opening a present when UPS dropped it off. I cannot explain how beautiful this sink is and how happy I am with it on our newly remodeled bathroom. We paired this with a newly laid, soft grey concrete slab counter-top and brushed nickel waterfall vessel faucet.
